We have booked with Bill & Gill every year since 2008 and always have a lovely stay. The room, view and breakfast are all fantastic and the hosts are some of the nicest people we have ever met. We hope to see you both again next year and thank you once again for another memorable stay.

£150 for a Highland B&B? Well actually it's more like staying in a beautiful room in a friend's lovely home, complete with a magnificent balcony overlooking the water, a scotch and shortbread on arrival and a great breakfast in the morning.

We stayed at this B&B for one night and were so impressed with every aspect of our stay. The room with it's own balcony and "hidden" bathroom was stunning, spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you might need including fresh fruit, bathrobes, binoculars, etc. In fact, it was better equipped than many a five star hotel. The location is excellent,... More

Stayed for 3 nights & it was perfect. Gill & Bill are delightful & so helpful. The location is stunning, our room was beautifully decorated & spotlessly clean, Gill & Bill had thought of everything even down to little details like an umbrella in case it rained. The breakfast was fantastic, lots of choice, cereals, fruit & an excellent choice... More

When we go on holiday we always say that we don't want to be less comfortable than we would be at home. Our delightful hosts made sure that everything was above our expectations and all their little extra touches made our stay exceptional. The large terrace with sea view was an added bonus. Thanks a lot Gill and Bill.

My husband and I travelled around Scotland for two weeks this month and stayed in many hotels and B&Bs. Water's Edge was our favorite. The house has been beautifully renovated and decorated. Our room was comfortable and luxurious, as well as immaculate, and had a big bathroom. We had beautiful weather and were able to enjoy the large balcony, with... More

We chose to stay here after reading positive reviews on Tripadvisor and Water's Edge surpassed our expectations. Bill and Gill are wonderful hosts, friendly but very relaxed. We stayed two nights in room 2 and greedily drunk in the view from our balcony. Yes, the weather was dry and mostly sunny while we were there but that merely enhanced our... More

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights, holidaying on the Black Isle and watching the dolphins. It was a luxurious experience. We had a wonderful room with a fabulous, large balcony and an amazing view across the garden to the shore and over the sea. So many additional touches around the home that made everything more enjoyable. Bill and... More

Everything is said in all of the other 5 star reviews - this wonderful B&B surpasses all expectation and has to be experienced first hand. Thank you Bill and Gill - no other bath will ever be good enough for my daughter!
